I’m building an enclosed IPad/IPhone charging station it’s a tall Black Walnut box with a brass Brusso “click” latch and Brusso 95 degree hinges. The charger needs AC input coming through the bottom of the box. I’ve got a charger with a removable cord and can fit it all in the box but I need a fitting or grommet for the ac cord to pass into the box, instead of just a hole in the bottom. Something brass or even plastic that will serve as a strain relief and guide for the ac cable. I’ve spent hours on line but don’t have a clue what to call this fitting. Can anyone guide me?

Rockler should have what you need.

See this link:

Looks like they call it a Flexi-grommet, but they have other styles in the link above.

Something like this?

Do a google for “wire strain relief”

Yes, I went through Rocler, Kloc Kit and untold hardware and cable management sites. Brad, the plastic wire strain relief is the best choice so far. I ordered a few but I’m still hoping for something a bit more classy. The wire strain relief search seems to be the path. Thank you both.
